Wood
Pros: Cheap
         Easy to change shape or size as your needs for space change
         DIY - most people would be able to build it from scratch or make modifications (e.g. add windows)
         Can be converted to chazzon ish (replace metal screws with peg screws)
         Can integrate a schlock to the structure
Cons: Heavy, Can warp over time. (note: if you use enough fasteners and are also careful to assemble it balanced this can be minimized)
         Needs lots of storage space

Fiberglass
Pros: Easy Setup (on level ground)
         Length/width is reconfigurable (you just need to buy a few 2x4 beams if you change layout)
Cons: Expensive
         Greenhouse effect on hot days (need to budget for several open/shut windows)
         Connection threads can become bent even with proper storage (need to budget for the odd panel replacement here and there)
         Can Crack or Break

Canvas
Pros: Setup in minutes
Cons: Not accepted by all poskim
         Poor protection from cold Weather
         Wind Can be bothersome.

Sensible Sukkah Sounds like an interesting option especially if you're short on storage space.

Watch the video - cute log cabin look!
Did you see an actual sukkah too? I'm having a hard time figuring out what the actual look is. Is it cozy like a log cabin or weird like sitting in a lego box.

What's about the look?like I said earlier from the video it could easily go either way from cozy to weird. Also do you know anyone that used it . What's the feedback is it strong or wobbly?.

I"yh I'll be building my own Sukkah for the first time this year.

Any recommendations?  Best durable Sukkah that's not too hard to put together?
Made a decision yet?

I'm leaning towards the modular wood option. I know of 3 companies; Leiters, Sukka Depot , and a third one based out of Passaic name slipped my mind. Does anyone know if there's any real difference between the 3. Or they are all the same with a tiny variation like someone mentioned that Sukkah Depot interlocks on the corners.

I`m pretty sure the Passaic one supplies Leiter`s but I might be wrong.

Some of those sukkah's have unique pieces that if you lose even a small piece of them it maybe very costly to replace them, so check before you buy.
